Acyl-CoA synthetase long-chain family member 4

ACS4, FACL4, ACSL4
The protein encoded by this gene is an isozyme of the long-chain fatty-acid-coenzyme A ligase family. Although differing in substrate specificity, subcellular localization, and tissue distribution, all isozymes of this family convert free long-chain fatty acids into fatty acyl-CoA esters, and thereby play a key role in lipid biosynthesis and fatty acid degradation. This isozyme preferentially utilizes arachidonate as substrate. The absence of this enzyme may contribute to the mental retardation or Alport syndrome. Alternative splicing of this gene generates 2 transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008] (from NCBI)

X linked mental retardation: a clinical guide.
Review
Raymond, Cambridge, United Kingdom. In J Med Genet, 2006
Secondly, the relative prevalence of genes causing only non-syndromic mental retardation (IL1RAPL1, TM4SF2, ZNF41, FTSJ1, DLG3, FACL4, PAK3, ARHGEF6, FMR2, and GDI) is summarised.
[Non-specific X-linked mental retardation].
Review
Martínez-Castellano, Valencia, Spain. In Rev Neurol, 2006
Other types of functions of the known genes include establishing and modulating synapses (DLG3, IL1RAPL, NLGN4X, GDI1), regulating transcription (ZNF41, ZNF81, PQBP1) translation (FTSJ1), and fatty acid metabolism (FACL4), etc. CONCLUSIONS: Each gene that has been identified only accounts for a minor fraction of the total amount of XLMR, and even if taken together they still do not explain half the cases of non-specific XLMR.
